Walking into The Mindfulness Center itself was a warm, relaxing and inviting experience. I really appreciate the optimistic attitude of the Center and their commitment to holistic healing. The staff was friendly, helpful and above all, CALM. Unlike my experience at an alopathic doctor’s office.  My appointment time was respected and I was not rushed at all and given full undivided attention! Dr. Alloway is an amazing chiropractor who gives a thorough treatment and educates you while treating you. I truly felt cared for, heard, understood and respected. I am looking forward to participating in other treatments that are offered at the Center and I highly recommend this center to anyone! - P.K.
From start to finish it was great! It was easy to get an appointment with Dr. Alloway, easy to park close to the center. I received email confirmation right after i made my appointment by phone. Dr. Alloway was great and solved my back problem which had been causing me pain for days and is so knowledgeable about spine/muscle etc issues. The whole experience was really good ad The Mindfulness Center is clean, and well run. - L.S.

Doctor of Chiropractic and Doctor of Physical Therapy with specialties in electronic acupuncture, nutrition, herbalism, homeopathy, aromatherapy, physical rehabilitation, and spiritual counseling. Graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1981, licensed in Maryland in 1981, and in constant private practice since 1981.

Advanced Physical Therapy equipment used by Dr. John Alloway includes a low level medical laser that has received 17 FDA Market Clearances based upon double-blind, randomized, multi-site placebo controlled clinical trials. According to Dr. Norman Doidge, MD in his 2015 book on light therapy, laser light is effective in treating: Alzheimers, Angiogenesis, Autoimmune diseases, Bone Repair, Brain Injury/ Concussion, Burns, Cancer, Cardiac Disease, Circulation Improvement, Degenerative Osteoarthritis, Depression, Diabetic Ulcers, Eczema, Herniated Discs, Herpes, Immune System, Migraines, Neurological Problems, Nerve Injuries, Psoriasis, Psychological Problems, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scar Tissue and Post surgical adhesions, Shingles, Stroke, Tinnitus, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Wound Healing.

Our bodies are filled with numerous light-sensitive chemical switches and amplifiers, meaning that light can turn on chemical reactions within living organisms. The low level light from these FDA-approved lasers gives off little or no heat. They work by helping sick cells to energize and heal themselves. Lasers decrease the stress on tissues caused by free radicals, preferentially affecting damaged cells not normal cells. Lasers increase cellular regeneration of damaged cells through the cell's own metabolism, the mitochondria and the synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate which is the fuel of cell metabolism). Laser light can relieve chronic inflammation, swelling and pain caused by the build up of free radicals associated with diet and exposure to chemical toxins.

Lasers also increase cellular communication within the nervous system, affecting phospholipid cell membranes, acupuncture meridians, and the integrin system. Laser light releases serotonin and affects cerebro-spinal fluid to carry photons emitted by lasers into the brain to improve the function of brain cells. Lasers applied to both peripheral nerves and cranial nerves stop degeneration and start regeneration to help damaged nerve tissue. A pioneer in light therapy, Dr. Alloway has been studying and using light therapy for over 20 years
